Suddenly cant access a website but can access other websites

  Saurind 29 Sep 13

Hi, I have a problem with accessing one particular website from my laptop.

The error message says The connection has timed out The server at is taking too long to respond. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the .

I am unable to access it from any browser- i have tried google chrome,firefox, safari and IE too

The website in question is, I was able to access the website last week from my computer. i use an acer aspire 4740G laptop windows 7 and use wifi in normally to access the website.

the website works perfectly fine on other PCs/laptops in office. It also works on both my phone 3G and wifi as well on phone.

I have tried accessing the website on my home internet connection as well but i am still not able to access it on the laptop. At home i can access it thru my phone though.

So i think its largely an issue with my laptop but i am unable to figure it out. Any help will be highly appreciated.

opens ok for me.

Close all your browsers, just have the desktop showing.

See if flushing your dns cache clears it click here

Start - All Programs - Click Accessories - RIGHT-click on Command Prompt - Select Run As Administrator - In the command window type the following and then hit enter: ipconfig /flushdns

That will clear out all the 'bad' entries.
